It's that time of the year again to start replenishing your collection of pens, buying crisp new notebooks, and picking out a few extra cozy wardrobe additions. Because your shopping list is already long enough, the below roundup of 20 back-to-school bags 2019 is here to help expedite your search for the perfect carryall. It's filled with backpacks and totes that are both roomy and sturdy, so no matter what textbooks, laptops, and the like you're going to be lugging, there will be an option that can accommodate your load in style.
Personally, I've always been a backpack lady. I've stuck to carrying the same black leather style for the past few years while working as a freelance writer because it fits my laptop, charger, wallet, and sunnies perfectly and looks sleek and cool while doing it. I can wear it to interviews, networking events, and meetings alike, so it's become my go-to. I will say that after looking through current school bag options there are some pretty rad colorful and printed backpacks out there, so I just might be snagging one with a little more pizazz sometime soon. Whether you prefer minimalistic or over-the-top, totes or backpacks, the below list will have something exciting for you, too.
